Evolution of Specification


This version of the PS-CA Implementation Guide has been superseded by a newer version. A full list of versions & releases of the PS-CA Implementation Guide may be found at Guides.


The Patient Summary-CA Canadian Edition project leverages an iterative, consensus-driven, version-based approach for publishing specification content. For more information on the PS-CA Specifications release cycle should review the pan-Canadian Interoperability PS-CA Release Information page.

This specification is being published in draft-for-review form to allow for multiple cycles of stakeholder review, validation, and feedback to refine and shape the constraints put forth in the PS-CA Version 1.0 Trial Implementation Guide.
